best friends too

Hi!  I've made another best friends card.  This time it is for Tiddly Inks Challenge -- Best Friends Forever.  Have you seen the new Wryn & Emmy digi?  So cute! 

Remember my whatcha doin? card?  See HERE.  For this card, I decided to give Wryn a best friend neighbor.

Wouldn't that be the best if your best friend lived next door to you?  And she also was a stay at home mom like you and wanted to craft all day while the kids were at school and you could share crafting stuff together?  It'd be like a dream!  I'm sure no chores or errands would be completed if this were the case for me.

So this digi is called Whatcha doing?  Cute!  I cut out her fingers to overlap the window frame.  The flowers were given to me by Jenny from Sister Stamps when I won some candy recently.  Aren't they super cute?  The word bubble and sentiment is from MFT's Say What die/stamp set.

Here is Wryn Whatcha Doin'?  I printed the images slightly larger than my previous card so I had to make the windows a bit larger which turned this card into a larger card.  I folded an 8.5 x 11 inch cardstock in half to accommodate both girls and their windows/homes.

Anyway, when I was in elementary school my best friend was my neighbor.  We lived in an apartment building and she lived 2 floors below me.  She'd come over or I'd go over there and it was so fun!  We'd walk home together and go to 7-11 for some snacks after school.   But she moved away to Texas in the 6th grade.  I think her father was in the military.  We were pretty faithful pen pals for a long time and she even came back to visit when we were a little older but we lost touch after that.  I wonder what she does now. 

Thanks for reading and have a great weekend!

Snowman gift card holder

Hi!  I was planning to post this last night but I was just too tired to write or think of complete sentences.  It's been a busy week with the boys on Fall break and still trying to finish up a bunch of crafts.  I have been trying to make some crocheted crafts to put in my Etsy shop and finally I'm done with one.  It's a crocheted snowman that can hold a gift card or anything actually that is small enough to fit in the pouch.  The pattern is designed by ChiWei Ranck of One Dog Woof and can be found HERE . Here's the little snowman with his arms folded over in the front to look like he is hugging the card.  I added this fun card that I stamped.  You can definitely add in a gift card too behind this card. The gift card reaches under his nose. This is how the little opening of the pouch looks.  I hope I can make more of these little guys.  These would be so cute for teachers and I think it would be easy to put a little wire through the hat and then use it as

all occasion tags

Hello!  I have more tags to share today.  I kept these simple too to be used on most any occasion.  They have no sentiments on them. I used MFT's cute Birdie Brown Bitty Bears stamp set.  These were on my wish list for a while and I kept going back and forth about purchasing them especially because I wanted the dies to cut them out too and those were very expensive!  Geez, remember the old days when we used to fussy cut everything out by hand? This is the next 6 tags.  There's also a cute bear with a Santa hat that I didn't include in the photos.  This was a pretty quick project since I kept the bears white!  Not much coloring on these tags but they are still cute and colorful. I thought I was going to be doing more stamping but I've actually gone on to crochet more!  I've made 3 more crochet projects that I'll share soon.  Sometimes I do get the urge to color something but these days it's so much easier to pick up some yarn and my hook and crochet

coffee cup shaped cards

Hi!  I think after this post I may need a little nap!  My right shoulder is actually feeling worn out from all the typing and photo editing I've been doing lately.  And this cooler weather is making me drowsy.  It's getting cold here already! I made a bunch of these coffee shaped cards using a die from Honey Bee Stamps .  It's a cute coffee set but the die is extra long so it would probably help to have a longer platform to diecut.  I just have the standard sized one so I would pass it through once in my Big Shot and then rotate the cardstock and die carefully to cut the other end.  Manageable but the longer platform would be more convenient! I embossed the front of the card with some pretty snowflakes.  I think this is a Sizzix embossing folder.  And then stamped the coffee sleeve with some Lawn Fawn stamps. This is the inside.  The gift card slot does not come with this coffee cup die set.  I cut that opening with one of the dies from MFT's gift card dies.
